) DEATH OF MR SOLOMON ANDREWS j I FEOM; STREET VENDOR TO COM- 1 MERCIAL MAGNATE. I FIRST FREEMAN OF PWLLHELI. News reached Pwllheli on Monday of the death of Mr Solomon Andrews, of Cardiff, at the advanced age of 73 years.. Mr Andrews was a remarkable man in many respects. As a self-made man there were fewer more interesting examples in the whole country than he. He had not the assistance of a good education. Indeed, it was only in his later years that he learnt to read and 'wiiLe, and yet iie had his fingers' ends the particulars of each of his varied undertakings, involving the cir- culation of hundreds of thousands of pounds .annually. Ha controlled each concern with such success that he not, only became a rich man, but aliso gave employment every succeed- ing year to a larger and larger number of (people, and other men of wealth bowed to fc's judgments* It was well over half a century ago that Mr Solomon Andrews went to Lardin. tie was alone, and had neither friends nor relations in the town. He commenced business as a *• reckoner in a small way in James Street, Docks, selling sweetmeats which he made him- self. Those were the days when only a few people knew anything of the making of sweet- meats, for sugar was then very mucn dearer than now. On market days in fine weather, Mr Andrews paraded St. Mary Street nd High Street, carrying the products of his in- dustry on a large wooden tray, suspended in ifront of him by a strap over the .shoulder. Then business improved, and he hired a stall at the entrance to the old market. He soon became well-known for his "rock," which was bought by people from a distance as well as residents of the town, and he did an excellent trade on market, days. He abo became cele- brated for his meat pies, and by total abstin- ence and strictest economy he soon began to accumulate wealth, which he utilised prohtably. It is said that he would walk to Uow bridge, twelve miles away, on Tuesdays to dispose of his wares. He is well remembered by the old boys of the Eagle School in that town, now elderly men, who were very good customers. It would be difficult to say what directed his attention to the position ot a cab proprietor, but, while still a stall-holder in C'aroitf Market he became the owner of a number of cabs and horses, until eventually he owned probably one- half the total number of cabs running in the town. He subsequently started running om- nibuses between Cardiif and Penarth, and other places. If space permitted it would be interesting to dwell on tne story of the way in which he captured the passenger traffic in Cardiff streets, leaving the old tramway com- pany with but little to do, and how he opened coffee taverns and fruit shops ail over the town, and also in Penarth and Barry. These business- es almost invariably succeeded, and the many- sided character of Mr Andrews is illustrated. by the statement that the number and extent of these places would have been quite sufficient for any one person to control. His connection with Pwllheli was only of recent origin- He came to the town from Uandudno, where he and his family had been spending a holiday, purchased the .West-End Estate and commenced to develop it. Building operations were started in Cardiff Road adjoining the present English Congrega- tional Chapel, and subsequently the West-End Hotel was built by him, together 'with a large number of houses on the front and in the ad- joining neighbourhood. The Pwllheli Recrea- tion Ground was laid in 1898, and prior to that he had purchased the Glynyweddw Hall and grounds at Llanbedrog, eventually acquiring all the land along the coast between Pwllheli and Llanbedrog. He opened a tram service between these two places. The golf links were laid, under his directions, by Mr John Morris, of Hoylake, and they are now about to be developed into the finest links in North Wales. Mr Andrews also acquired considerable property at Portnant, Barmouth, Dogelley and property at Portnant, Barmouth, Dogelley and Aberdovey. *At a meeting of the Pwllheli Town Council on Monday, the Mayor (Alderman Anthony) referred to the death of Mr Andrews, who was I the first freeman of the town. He was we] l J known to all of them, and he did a good deal (for the prosperity of the town. Though I eccentric, he was a noble character, and they, as a town, owed him a great deal. He moved ) a vote of condolence with the family. Dr Wynne Griffith seconded, and the vote was carried. j
HOW TO KILL A Pi3 j INTERESTING CASE AT PWLLHELI. ¡ iBefPore the Pwllheli magistrates, on Wednes- I day, Emmanuel Davies and John Roberts, of I Trevor, were summoned at. the instance of the R.S.P.CLA. for killing a pig in a manner liikedy to cia-ulse it uameoessairy suffering.—Mr Alfred Plarriy prosecuted on. behalf of the- society. Mr Parry said that Messrs R. M. Greaves and J. W. Wyatit. happened to be on a. certain daite near the gnanite qua-ray at Trevor, when thtay saw a pi! being slaughtered in a field' in view of t'he public rtoad. There was no justi- fication for the methods adopted by defen- dants. and tihoiugth the society did not press for a. heavy penalty, tSiey hoped the Bench would mark their seanse of disapproval by reigidterinig a conviction. This would serve as a warning to Ottthers to discontinue t'he methods ■which were a general ciusttom in the country. M'r Greaves said his attention was attracted ibv a pig screaming. He saw the pig be'ng dragged by a ro)pe attached to his nose, and eimu'ltlaneously tihe cither defendant stabbed it .:in the throat with a knife. The pig was being continually dragged along the field and \va>
STARRED SEVERAL TIMES. Wheat the pig could no longer stand up the defendant with the rope pulled it backwards and forwardiB. Witness them visited the scene, and told defendants that he would report the anaitteir. (The piig had been dragged for .15 yarde. It was an extremely distressing s;ght. One of the defendants asked him ho"v els*, oouffid they kill a pig. Mr Wyatt corroborated. There were people looking on at a distance. Inspector Gibson sad he visited Trevor on the 23rd ult. Roberts, who is t- tutoher, told him fchatb thaut waa the spasitoona -v wanner of slaughtering pigs. They were n It awart; that they were doing any wrong. By a Magistrate: I have never heard of a being dragged in this way before. When elialightered a pig should lose consc: ->u;"nc,ss m 45 seconds, bult in this case it was ten rrvnutes. By the Clerk: Re had ro rtat-on to doubt but that this was f e custo.iiary manner. Emmanuel Davies, a quarry labourer, said he assisted Roberts. He had charge of the rope. Rdber-ts had no idea that, be was doing any flwrong at ala. The Inspector, recalled, said that more hu- imane methods of killing animals were now .recommended, and ineltffuments for that pur- pose were provided. Defendants were fined 56 and costs each, 316 in all.

EXPLOSION IN SCHOOL SIN JULAR ACCIDENT AT COLWYN BAY. On Thursday an accident occurred at the Higher Grade School. It appears that one of the pupils in the chemistry class (the eldest son of Mr. Hulme, Stretford Villa), proceeded to work an experiment, and whilst pounding a mixture of potassium chloride and other chemi- cals in a mortar, an explosion occurred. The mortar was blown to pieces, and one of the fragments struck the lad's wrist, severing an artery. His face was also badly burnt. Medi- cal assistance was soon forthcoming, and we understand that the patient is recovering.
